Utah Legislature


Vote Not GOP! Contest

NotGawpI don’t know what to do anymore, as far as my blessed Democratic Party is concerned. It seems that the more we – out here on the “Left Fringe” – argue that we should, as a party, fight for basic human rights, marriage equality, women’s rights, to improve education, single payer health care, anon, anon; the more we find ourselves wrestling with our own party than with the GOP.


The habit of passive messaging is falling on still deaf ears this year just like the others, and the GOP lite strategy that has failed for decades is still in full operation – some more. So, instead of stumping for a Party that would be delighted to get rid of all these pesky Democrats, I’m going to stump for you, your friends, your family, and your neighbors to Vote Not GOP* this year. It’s that simple. Now – here’s the exciting part: we’re having a contest.  I want you, you fabulous American, you, to put together a 30 second message or a powerful graphic, about why people should vote for anyone but a Republican this year. The categories for this contest are Audio, Video, or Art. We will pick a winner in each of the three categories and those three winners will get prizes!


  • We’ll have you on The LEFT Show to tell us about your piece.
  • You get a fancy, new The LEFT Show T-Shirt!
  • Well use your message, attributed to you, on all of our messaging, social media and paid Facebook ads.
  • You’ll bask in the glow of your awesomeness and patriotic fervor.

Melissa Merlot joined Jeff, Jon, and Forrest in the studio again – I think she’s sweet on us, and, really, who the hell would blame her? We’re adorable! Or something.

We’ve got an all new GOP Jesus Wanker of the Week, the Ghomert of the minute, Jason Williams is back with an all new Bat Sh@t Crazy – breaking down the Utah GOP and their wacky weekend of weird!

#121 – The LEFT Show – Box of Pastries


#121 The LEFT Show How Many Make A CPAC?

This is it, my little beauties! The last show before we, The LEFT Show family, go on “Vacation.” Vacation, sadly, in The LEFT Show world means lots and lots of work to do, getting current shows re-invigorated, a couple of new shows off the ground, and, if we can find just TWO folks to buy in at the CITIZENS RE-UNITED LEVEL, we can get the call in feature up and running. LIVE CALLS!

Lisa, Brenda, and Forrest join your faithful starship captain, J.M. Bell in another round of talking about the talk aboutable! This one is a Wednesday show that, honestly, redefines the definition of the Wednesday Show. Not kidding, either. Funny doesn’t cover it.

Jason is back with a new Bat Sh@t Crazy all about those pesky racists at CPAC.

#119 – The LEFT Show – Outrage Fatigue


 #119 The LEFT Show Give It Up

It’s a special The US Senate episode of The LEFT Show. JC Carter 616, Ultimate Bob, Forrest Shaw 616, and J.M. Bell 616, get together to talk about the Rand Paul Fake Filibuster, the fake filibusters to come, more fake things, and, of course, the simple fact the the GOPpers just don’t understand about poor people.

Who the hell am I boycotting this week? Joss Whedon gets taken to task for reasons unknown, the lie of The American Dream, and our new, and ongoing, List of Things Obama Has Actually Done OK. Listen in, folks!

#117 – The LEFT Show – Return of the Boz


#117 The LEFT Show is a Wildcat in the Sack!

I’m trying to write this while watching the end of The Warrior’s Way, so … if it gets disjointed, sue me. Curtis Haring is back, with Bob Easton covering for Jake. JM Bell and Forrest, of course, are here. Damn this is a fun movie to watch. Silly as hell, but, so very pretty.

Michelle Bachmann is out of touch, tuna isn’t tuna, Soledad is in trouble with the stenographers pool, and Rachael Maddow is in out hearts and in our minds. Colin Powell’s old chief of staff lays it all out on Iraq, video games are great for kids (kinda), and not too many folks want to be a GOPper.

The VFX community in America is getting screwed and JM totally flubs their pitch, SEQUESTER! SEQUESTER! SEQUESTER! ObamaCare is not what you’re being told it is, and the Utah Legislature takes away the power of someone who was working for, you know, the people.

All this and Jason finally showed up again, what’s that all about? Racism in the Supreme Court, that’s what!

Duh-na-na-na-na-na-naNAH-na-na-na-na-nana LEFT SHOW!

#104 – The LEFT Show – Percocet Begins

Weeeeee! I started the day with a nasty migraine, took half a percocet, and, for those that have listened to this show for awhile, you know that things get goofy when I get … under the influence. Weeeee!

First of all, have you gone over to The City Weekly to vote for The LEFT Show yet? Hmmm?

Remember, in OCTOBER, when The LEFT Show broke the latest chapter of the Skulduggerous Adventures of Johnny Swallow? We’ll be talking about that some more, among SO MANY other, interesting stuff!


And then there’s THIS! 


We talk about SPACE and SCIENCE – because we’re not Republicans! The President takes his forth oath of office today (think it through, it’ll come to you) and Utah is about to pressured by the Feds to “make changes” – but, no one’s really all that loud about it … yup, not guns.

Speaking of guns, crazy about guns, and morons with guns, we also have letters from morons about guns, and a little more gun stuff. Oh, then I lose my shit and start yelling at Sgt. Jake … for REASONS! Guns and slavery, too! The LEFT is dumb on guns, too!

We read the 23 Executive Orders that President Obama signed that don’t restrict your 2nd Amendment Rights, not one little bit, you reactionary, purposefully ignorant, knee jerk, chuckleheads. LISTEN AND LEARN!

Start your two day countdown to a brand new Bat Sh@t Crazy with Jason Williams, folks!

#104 – The LEFT Show – Percocet Begins
